    YOU there! The man currently prancing around in a HAT in the YUKON! You got more things to hide behind a door than something "TOP SECRET," right? SAXTON HALE is ALWAYS RIGHT.

    Due to said lack of NON-SECRET DOORS, I, SAXTON HALE, have devised a BLANK DOOR with sweat, tears, and my BARE HANDS.

    With this DOOR, you can cleverly disguise anything behind it!

    "But SAXTON!" I hear you say with caps lock. "HOW, oh HOW will I get the lettering to look correct?" Well, troubled texture artist, I suggest using this font: Haettenschweiler with letter spacing modified by sight.

    Just slap some text on there and import it like ANY OTHER TEXTURE and Great Scott, you've done it!

    Now go on, troubled texture artists, and fulfill your dreams of YOUR OWN DOOR!

    Well, troubled texture artist! I believe you know! Give it a "$selfillum" 1 in the .VMT and add an ALPHA CHANNEL to the door texture! BUT. Make sure ONLY your WINDOW is WHITE in the ALPHA CHANNEL!

    Then you can have a MYSTERIOUS GLOW behind your CUSTOM OFFICE DOOR!

    Mr Hale, what if our base blueprints do not have any doors? What use is this for us then?

    Then enjoy your eternity in a TRAPPED ASYLUM of despicable sweaty MEN that can't efficiently build a STRUCTURE over their own HEADS!

    Now you, with the ASSISTANCE of an EIGHTEEN POINT ARIAL FONT, can devise a SLIGHTLY more PROFESSIONAL way of introducing your teammates to your new DOOMSDAY DEVICE and/or ZEPPELIN!

    A tad UNNECESSARY but I, SAXTON HALE, am sure something GOOD will come out of IT!

    Apparently you've been intercepting the magic map fairies that visit me in my sleep and give me ideas. I needed exactly such a resource for my office/medical research facility map that I am building.

    I will be sure to save an executive suite for Mssr Saxton Hale.

    would it be just as effective to just put the blank door in a map, and then maybe put an overlay with a poster/sign on the door?
